The blazing start to Trevor Story’s major league career continued Friday.

The Colorado Rockies rookie shortstop hit his fifth and sixth home runs during his team’s game against the San Diego Padres, becoming the first player in the last 100 years to hit six homers in his team’s first four games of a season, per StatsCentre.

Story’s first homer of the day came in the bottom of the fourth inning, shortly after the Padres had scored six runs in the top half. His blast cleared the left field wall and cut San Diego’s lead to 6-5.

Though the Rockies lost 13-6, Story hit his second home run of the game in the bottom of the ninth inning.

“I’ve said it before,” Story said, per the Associated Press (via, “I’m not trying to hit home runs, sometimes it kind of happens.”

Rockies All-Star outfielder Carlos Gonzalez said it’s “legendary” what Story has done so far.

“He’s fearless,” Gonzalez said, per the AP. “He’s playing like a Hall of Famer right now.”

Story came into Friday’s game batting 4-for-14, with all four hits coming via the long ball. He went 3-for-5 and drove in four runs in the loss to San Diego.

The Irving, Texas, native is quickly becoming another offensive star for the Rockies, joining Nolan Arenado and Gonzalez to form an exciting young trio in Colorado. It’s unfair to expect these numbers to continue for Story, but he’s showing glimpses of what’s to come in the future.
